RFP: Here’s your chance to redevelop a 140-acre mall site—built in 1972 and vacant for 6 years—in North St. Louis County, Missouri

In St. Louis, Missouri, the St. Louis County Port Authority (the “Authority”) is pleased to present to qualified developers a prominent site in unincorporated North St. Louis County, Missouri.

St. Louis County is home to many of the St. Louis region’s largest employers and prominent regional assets, including the St. Louis Lambert International Airport, corporate headquarters for Centene, Express Scripts, Bunge, multiple Boeing Company facilities and Bayer Crop Science.

The Authority issues this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to purchase and redevelop an approximately 140-acre property located at the former Jamestown Mall site in St. Louis County, Missouri 63034 (the “Property”). The Property is located at the intersection of N. Lindbergh Blvd (US Highway 67) and Old Jamestown Rd, one mile west of the recently expanded Missouri Route 367.

The Property includes improvements with 1 million square feet “under roof” and 2 million square feet of asphalt paved surface parking. The Property offers access to all of the amenities of the St. Louis region. The future redeveloper will benefit from the Property’s strategic location within a residential area, access to major highways and interstates, proximity to public transportation, and existing access to public utilities.

Jamestown Mall was originally developed in 1972 as an enclosed shopping center, with four multi-story anchor stores – Dillard’s, Macy’s, Sears and JC Penney – surrounding a single-story atrium with a number of in-line stores, a food court and a movie theatre.

The Mall was permanently closed in 2014 and has undergone some limited environmental remediation and extensive salvage of interior metal components.

  • The Property totals approximately 140 acres of land and is currently zoned as a planned commercial district;
  • Improvements include the former mall and adjacent out-lot building, containing approximately 1,167,063 square feet “under roof” and an improved surface parking lot of 2,000,000 square feet;
  • The Property is bounded by N. Lindbergh Blvd. to the north and Old Jamestown Road to the west. Single-family residential subdivisions are located to the north, south and east of the Property;
  • The Property features excellent access to interstates, major thoroughfares, the region’s public transit/bus system and is less than 20 minutes from Lambert International Airport.
